Day 9.. I really wanted to hop on the scale this morning but I held back. I'll wait until next monday... The pants feel good... I feel good... That is all that really matters to me.
So I must admit, I did have cake on my birthday. I had some grocery shopping to do last night and as I walked through the bakery department, I noticed a small tiramisu nicely packaged with all the nutritional information included... If the mocha ricotta creme that I was going to eat is approximately 270 calories plus what I was going to do which was add more chocolate chips for a treat, and the tiramisu is ranked at 320, AND the fact that I was planning to share the tiramisu with my husband, our dessert would rank at 160 calories each, a lower calorie count than the ricotta dessert, but much less protein in it (15g I think in the ricotta vs. 4 in the tiramisu). I ate half of my half and saved the other half for later....later came about a half hour later...! But it was my birthday! I deserved a treat.
While I didn't get my chicken dinner (breasts were supposed to be marinated...OVERNIGHT...oops....so we threw them in the marinade and we'll eat them for dinner tonight. The hubby still cooked for me though and then cleaned for me and then gave me a birthday gift: All day spa treatment with body wrap, manicure, pedicure, massage therapy, etc... Just in time for our vacation, my skin will look and feel great and the feet and hands will be polished and soft! I've only ever had a manicure a couple, few times so the rest will really be a treat!

25 minute elliptical workout, 3 minutes of haphazard yoga attempts, gave up...! I've got to get the satellite cables working again...ugh.
Geeze, before it was a tomato overdose, yesterday it was a mushroom overdose! But they say that the longer mushrooms are exposed to sunlight, the more vitamin D they absorb so I'm getting my dose of D. With these Canadian Winters, one rarely ventures into the frigid temperatures for longer than it takes to run from the house to the car...from the car to the office...and back again!
And the times I do spend outdoors (snowmobiling for example) I'm covered in winter gear from head to toe and all that is exposed is my eyes! Mushrooms are gooooood.
Keep on keeping on....
